Yeah, I can finally show some secret sewing. My Tuesday stitching buddies decided to do a block sw for Christmas. After settling on 12 inch finish. Block negotiations began, verdict select a colourway only. Then we each create a secret block for each colourway. Therefore in the end you have 5 blocks in your colourway.
Here are each of the girls choices. L chose Blue & White, W chose predominantly Yellow, N chose Red & White, T chose predominantly Green and I chose Yello & Grey.
Here are my 5 blocks in different colourways.
All the blocks need another good pressing to straighten themout a little. Tonight we swapped, with a few going back for finishing, its been a big year for everyone, so were cool about.
Check out the variety. L made cardtrick. W the bento boxes, T the checkerboard which is going back to attach coffee mugs symbolic of our group & N the windmill. W akso handed hers out inside gingerbread men boxes with matching ribbons to identify our blocks.
T made her block larger adding a border in case we were bordering them 😁
So these blocks have been burning a hole in my drafts list, waiting to be revealed. Tonight the swap reveals my bounty. I’m planning on making the “five friends table runner”
Happy stitching ❤ Debbierose xx
